The decision on the reduction was based on the lower level of the actual inflation rate by the end of 2017 in contrast to the forecasted trajectory, the estimates of the further deceleration of the inflationary processes, the continuing weak recovery of the domestic demand, and also the favourable trends in the external markets.
